A new promo of The Kapil Sharma Show, featuring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani as guests, has been shared online. The actors came to raise their upcoming movie, Laxmmi Bomb, and seemingly had a blast shooting for the episode.
In the promo, host Kapil Sharma tells Kiara that she looks adorable, to which Akshay quips that the lighting on the set is such that everyone looks adorable. Akshay gets quite a lot of presents from the cast members of the show, including a money plant and a note-counting machine.
Kapil asks Akshay, who is known to signal and shoot for a couple of projects in a year, whether his date diary went for a toss because of the nationwide lockdown. “Khud 365 din kamaye, lekin mera calendar chhota kar de (He himself works 365 days a year but wants me to work less)!,” Akshay says, leaving permanent guest Archana Puran Singh in splits.
The fun exchange continues as Kapil defends himself and says, “Nahi, nahi, mereko bohot khushi hai, paaji (No, no, I am more than pleased for you).” Akshay replies, “Mereko toh kabhi nazar nahi aaya tu khush (I have never seen you happy).”
Kapil admits to Kiara that he used to be envious seeing Akshay in a specific advertisement. Akshay laughs as he reveals that Kapil used to be previously the brand ambassador of the product. Akshay claims that Kapil earns big bucks and has a bigger house than him. “Jitna yeh aadmi idhar show mein loot ta hai na, koi nahi loot ta. Ek din main iske ghar gaya tha. Itna bada ghar toh mera nahi hai (The amount this man earns from this show, no one does. I went to his house at some point. Even my house isn’t so big),” he laughs.

Transgender rights activist Laxmi Narayan Tripathi then joins Akshay and Kiara on the show, and makes a point approximately the need for inclusivity in society.
Laxmmi Bomb stars Akshay as a man possessed by the spirit of a transgender person. At an earlier digital press convention, he had called it his ‘most mentally intense role’ in the three decades of his career. “This is unlike any character I’ve ever played. I needed to be careful to painting this character with utmost honesty, without offending any community,” he had said. The movie will begin streaming on Disney+ Hotstar on November 9.
